Sandler Trade LLC’s recent collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo and reviewers from wine blog Virginia Wine Time on a live Twitter tasting of Kosovar wines has garnered some attention among the wine blogging community. One such wine blogger, Todd Godbout – owner of and writer for Wine Compass, a blog that features wines from around the world – was particularly interested in Kosovo’s wines. We met with Mr. Godbout and presented him information about Kosovo’s wine industry as well as the wine companies whose wine was included in the Twitter tasting. In addition, we also provided useful contact details, including that of Illyrian Imports Inc., the only importer of Kosovar wines in the United States. Mr. Godbout will be incorporating the information we provided him in a blog piece on his website in the near future.
This week, Sandler Trade LLC also met with the Aga Khan Foundation to discuss the role that MFIs play in facilitating export for their borrowers, particularly in Egpyt.
